Op uitstap naar de Seashell Temple 🐚

Hallo! Een leuke uitstap die we hier deden was een bezoekje aan de Seashell Temple. Deze tempel ligt verscholen op een bergtop in het noorden van Taiwan.

Taipei’s hot spot: the Elephant Mountain Trail

Hello! You can see the mountains surrounding Taipei from almost any point in the city. One of these mountaintops is Elephant Mountain. (AKA  象山 or Xiangshan) The name refers to the shape of another hill you can see when standing on the top of Elephant Mountain. That hill should look like an Elephant. (FYI: I don’t […]
